"A wonderful accessible holiday cottage."
We had a great week where my mum could be independent. Grosmont is gorgeous and the steam trains disability friendly too. All perfect.
"Lovely cottage - very comfortable and clean."
We had a couple of issues - the fire alarm and the sink in the downstairs bedroom but both were sorted straight away and the owner was really friendly. The disabled facilities were perfect for my Mum. Thank you for providing such a beautiful place to spend a few days.
"We have now been to Sunday Cottage 3 times & it is perfect for our family's needs - my brother is severely disabled & the facilities in his bedroom replicate his home environment."
The only feedback that we have would be that the option to split the double bed into 2 singles would also be helpful.
"Clean, comfortable and well equipped."
"Starting with parking, I have a large WAV luckily no one else was in he other accommodation so we had plenty of space but I could see it being problematic if more vehicles there."
The cottage itself is excellent, clean, tidy and modern the disabled bedroom has a ceiling hoist from bedroom into the large wet room. I could get around the bed in my manual wheelchair but maybe not in an electric one. All in all the pros outweighed the cons, after a lovely stay I would certainly recommend it to others.
"We came with our disabled teenage daughter."
I had seen a picture online of the disabled parking place. We have a large WAV and found parking difficult just wanted to mention it for anyone thinking of booking. The parking space is near the ramp to the cottage, we had to park sideways which made it difficult to drive out of the space as there are parking spaces for the other cottages next to the space. The non disabled spaces were bigger and would have been better for our vehicle. Also if you have a large powered wheelchair there is not enough room in the disabled bedroom. A lovely cottage if you do not have any mobility problems.
"It was a lovely well equiped property and we really enjoyed our stay."
The facilities for the lottle boy we has on holiday was great. So many things to do in the area. It is hilly though if you are a wheelchair user. Beach wheel chairs in Whitby to hire and if you book early enough wet wheels yorkshire have boats.
"Very good cottage to stay in."
A little steep from parking area, but managed ok. We had a very enjoyable holiday. A very lovely village to stay in, plus not to far to get to the coast.
"I found the accommodation faultless in all respects."
As a wheelchair user my daughter particularly enjoyed the freedom of being able to do things like use the shower that she would normally have rquired assistance with. The owners could not have been more gracious and helpful throughout and everything possible to make our stay a comfortable one had been done.
"‘Sunday Cottage’ is the second half of a beautiful Sunday school conversion."
The access is by a steep ramp, best viewed on pictures of ‘Limber View’, the first half of the conversion. The property is immaculate with everything you could possibly need. The views are stunning and there was nothing nicer than looking out across the countryside and listening to the steam trains coming into the station. The disabled facilities were excellent - hoist, profiling bed, wet room. The space around the bed was a little tight for the wheelchair, but Jill, the helpful owner explained that the furniture was on castors and could be moved. We had a very enjoyable stay and hope to come again!
"A first class holiday cottage with furnishings, fittings and equipment to the highest standard."
Ideal for the disabled.
"Very good facilities, would highly recommend for anyone looking to stay in the North Yorkshire Moors."
"We have just returned from a very comfortable week in this extremely well equipped holiday cottage."
I have never found , for example, a cheese grater, set of scales and measuring jug in any similar establishment before. I needed to use the disabled bedroom, which was everything I needed, spacious, very well planned and comfortable. Plenty of hanging space & drawers, good bed and warm. There is a gentle eccentricity to the washbasin plumbing, which took some working out, the " plug", and the 45 seconds it took for the hot water to emerge, once the lever tap was pushed right round to the right, but once I'd fathomed that out all went swimmingly. One warning though! The key safe is fiddly, and positioned right over a drain! Take care! I'd go there again, happily.
"Sunday cottage was a lovely places to stay well equipped with everything you need spotless clean on arrival"
"Very comfortable and well-equipped."
We were very impressed by the heating and would like to know more about how it works. If this is an example of what an air source heat pump can achieve, then roll on the green revolution!
"I chose Sunday Cottage because my husband is sevrely disabled and reading what the owners said online about their personal experience of caring for a disabled person I felt confident that the accommodation would be suitable."
The disabled suite is very good except that the toilet did not flush well and the seat was very flimsy and loose. A major difficulty was getting my husband seated comfortably and a great deal of help was needed to get him up once he sat down. I took a riser chair for granted when I booked. Huge mistake and a major cause of difficulty during our stay. The Cottage is very attractive and well presented but there is a definitely room for improvement. I believe a riser chair has been ordered which is a very good thing for future users.
"Very clean, well equipped, warm and cosy."
Wet room and disabled facilities well provided. The only problem I had was that the cottage was situated high on a hill with steep access to and from. My partner is a big man in a wheelchair with only one leg and is constantly in a wheelchair. I am a very small, frail woman with arthritic wrists and without the help of relatives who joined us for the stay, it would have been impossible for me to push my partner from the car, up a very steep incline to the cottage. When I booked our stay at first there was only going to be the 2 of us. If that was the case, then we wouldn't have been able to access the property.
"Nice cottage not suitable for more than one disabled person ."
Very noisy on two days , builders doing the roof ,scaffold obscured views ,only taken down on day thee of our stay. Furniture not comfortable ,television gave you neck ache . We would not use the cottage again .
"Very surprised to find out the picture shows two rental units not one."
A chair for the disabled visitor to use is really an essential item that should be provided. Loved the location, beautiful walks including one that was ideal for a wheelchair user.
"Really nice helpful owners,property kept to a great standard."
"A lovely cottage in a lovely village."
Really enjoyed all the walks and activities that the surroundings have to offer and to retreat into a comfortable cottage at the end of a long day.
"Sunday Cottage was perfect for our needs."
However, we felt a TV in the bedrooms upstairs would be welcome. The double bed mattress was in need of an upgrade, far too soft and a king size would be better. The rooms were spacious and could take a chair in the room also. The kitchen was well thought out and contained items that you might forget to put in your bag to bring with you like kitchen roll, kitchen foil etc.,the welcome pack was a lovely surprise. Any negatives are only personal and do not detract from the quality of the property. The underfloor heating is awesome. There are not many properties that cater for people with mobility issues in such a nice way, so, well done to the owners. It is definitely 5 star.
"Beautiful, well equipped apartment/home in idyllic location."
Everything we needed for our family break, including the bottle of wine which we enjoyed once the kids were in bed! Lots of space for everyone and lovely views across the countryside. Would recommend and hope to return.
"Perfect for our needs, especially the adapted bedroom and wet room - made our stay so easy."
Loved the cottage and Grosmont. Hope to return!
"What a beautiful place!"
Thank you for the wine, flowers and cake. Sunday Cottage was well thought out for anyone with mobility and care issues. Our son, Lee, really loved his stay here. A great location for visiting all areas. Great food at The Magpie and Alberts in Whitby; thanks for the recommendation Rod! Loved the Old School Coffee Shop in the village - excellent coffee and Lee loved watching the trains - 5 stars!
"Brilliant. We couldn't have asked for a nicer cottage."
Well equipped and spacious for Reece and his wheelchair. We all thoroughly enjoyed it. For a steam train enthusiast (Reece) he had a great time travelling on the train at the bottom of the hill. A highly recommended trip for fantastic views. Thank you so much Rod. We look forward to coming back again.
"Lovely cottage, suitable for all our needs and more!"
Thank you. Would definitely return.
"Thank you for a lovely stay, picture perfect cottage, loved it."
Hopefully see you again next year. xx
"Beautiful accommodation with fantastic accessible bedroom and wet room."
Scenery stunning and excellent train service to Whitby and Goathland. Very clean and delicious cakes on arrival laid out on the table. Love the underfloor heating - thank you!
"Amazing place to stay."
